Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Excellent materiel
I have used this mel board for decades both black and white to make cabinets, desks, office counters, computer work centers, and shelving. I even used it in my kitchen as a temporary sink counter for four years until I could replace it with the real thing. It held up very well for being in a wet place but I don't recommend it for that.
The desks and counters I made for commercial offices were heavily used and lasted for 15+ years until the warehouse was totally rebuilt. You can edge it with white edging tape or use solid hardwoods. You can also use vinyl Tee molding (commonly called "slap" molding. It is best cut, in my opinion, with 1/4" carbide tipped router bits.
I am currently making a sewing room for my wife and I will use this materiel for a sturdy sewing table, extensions, and work area.

I build reptile enclosures for a living and this is all I use because it is so easy to wipe down if something is spilled on it or an animal goes to the bathroom the only downside to this is that you must predrill all the holes which can be time consuming but it makes a enclosure look great

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bjp182 It is melamine
It's melamine. It was white and in fine condition. I ordered 16 sheets via Web which was nice. The order was ready for the next day all bundled. Guys loaded it on my trailer as well. Used for cabinets

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KyHillbillly This melamine is not 3/4" thick
I bought this product seeing that the online specifications show that it is 3/4" thick. I designed my project for 3/4" thick dadoes throughout. The boards I cut COULD NOT be driven into a 49/64" slot. (allowing 1/64" for fit-up) Now I have to go back and change all my drawing measurements to 25/32" because the panels are just a tad thicker than specified. Either this product is not milled to specs or Home Depot needs to change the measurements in it's description.
FOI: The edges were not swelled. I measured the thickness from a center cut.

Needing a large panel to front a white garage work desk, I bought this 4x8 knowing there would be plenty left over. But I've found several ways to constructively use up the pieces, shelves etc. Good stuff.
